At Scylla Summit 2018, Yahoo! Japan’s engineers Takahiro Iwase and Murukesh Mohanan took to the stage to describe their reasoning for testing Scylla, a challenger, against Apache Cassandra, their in-house long-time NoSQL favorite. With Cassandra, as Takahiro said, “We have problems. Lots of problems.”
Once we set up the first Scylla cluster, we realized that Scylla mostly tunes itself. That seemed like a pretty impressive feat, knowing that the system could be installed, auto-tune, and be ready for a production workload. We were heartened to know that the engineering team at Scylla had put a lot of effort into making sure their product will perform well out of the box.
Veramine CEO Jonathan Ness makes the case for Scylla over other SQL and NoSQL solutions, including PostgreSQL and Casssandra for real-time cybersecurity.
